Austin, TX – Patient Privacy Rights announces registration is open for the 2nd International Summit on the Future of Health Privacy: Is There an American Health Privacy Crisis?
The Summit will be held on June 6th-7th, 2012 at the Georgetown University Law Center. The O’Neill Institute at Georgetown Law is an academic partner, along with the Harvard Data Privacy Lab, RTI International, The University of Cambridge Computer Laboratory, and the University of Texas School of Information.
We are pleased to announce Ross Anderson PhD, FRS, will be a keynote speaker at the Summit. Anderson is a Professor in Security Engineering at the University of Cambridge Computer Laboratory as well as a researcher, writer, and industry consultant and expert in security engineering.
The 2nd International Summit on the Future of Health Privacy is the first and only international venue for serious discussions by experts and thought leaders on the urgent privacy issues raised by health technologies and architectures (including mHealth and ‘clouds’), by law and regulations, data exchange, secondary uses of health data, and social media platforms. The summit will also explore health privacy through the lens of US and international policies about health information privacy, such as the recent Consumer Bill of Privacy Rights and the EU Draft Regulation on the Protection of Individuals with Regard to the Processing of Personal Data and on the Free Movement of Such Data.
The 1st International Summit on the Future of Health Privacy successfully created the first global public forum on the future of health privacy. The panels on urgent issues included health privacy experts from academia, industry, technology, consumer advocacy, top government officials, and international experts.
